Money Talks with Stephen Diedericks

We welcome Stephen Diedericks to Hawke's Bay and Radio Kidnappers.

Stephen, his wife, Tania and their six children recently moved to Hastings from Australia, via Auckland. For Tania, this is a return to home, reconnecting with her school, Taikura Rudolf Steiner School.

Stephen started life thinking that he wants to be comfortable. He realised that, to be comfortable, he and everyone around him will have to be rich. This has led to Stephen's philosophy: "if people do what they love, they will become rich and be comfortable - in reality, more than comfortable".

After reviewing various paths to achieve this philosophy, Stephen found personal development and financial education. He is now a Professional Network Marketer, with a global On-line shop focusing on 'Swap Where You Shop' and for the past 20 months has been writing weekly financial education articles.

Stephen graduated from Wollongong University with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree, majoring in Accounting and Legal Studies. Since graduating and while working, he completed his Certified Practising Accountant (CPA) studies and a Juris Doctor (Masters of Law) at Monash Law School. Stephen's work experience was gained in the tax divisions of the global accounting firms, KPMG, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Ernst & Young. Stephen also gained experience working with the tax divisions of the New South Wales Treasury (Office of State Revenue) and the State Revenue Office (Victoria). In New Zealand, he has worked for law and accounting firms before establishing his own firm: Stephen's Tax, Business and Assets Protection Services Limited.

In his Accounting practice, Stephen negotiates tax write-offs and penalty and interest remissions. While working in Auckland, he successfully negotiated a tax write off of $253,000, which made his client cry.

Stephen's experience also includes asset structuring, asset protection and trust establishment and maintenance. This is where his law qualifications are valuable. He has been admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand but operates as a Certified Practising Accountant.

Stephen's passion is financial literacy. He will not be sharing which shares you should buy or sell, or which mix of assets to have for diversification. He says you should see your financial adviser.

Stephen will focus on financial education by sharing his research and thoughts on different ways to generate additional income. In addition, he will also share his version of what his friend has termed the 'Inner Game of Money' and Stephen's own 'Outter Game of Money'.

Stephen also offers everyone a free 30-minute consultation to determine which business-type would be best suited to them. His contact details will be provided at the end of each programme. You can also find his broadcasts on YouTube and podcasted on Access Internet Radio.
